50 Cent announces one-off Auckland show

50 Cent will have a show in Auckland, New Zealand this year as part of a tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’.

The Grammy award-winner will play Auckland’s Spark Arena on Thursday, December 14 as part of The Final Lap Tour.

Organisers Live Nation say the show will “feature the rap icon performing dozens of fan-favourite and chart-topping hits along with select tracks that have not been performed live in decades”.

50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, rose to fame with 2003’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and has since sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

“I wasn’t even sure that it was possible to sell 13 million records because the most I had seen done was 5 million records with a double CD,” he told Rolling Stone while reflecting on his debut album recently.

“It was Tupac’s All Eyez on Me. And for an African-American male solo artist to go diamond, he had to die to do it. When I say Get Rich or Die Tryin’, and I’m running around as crazy as we were at that point, you would look and you say, ‘There’s a high possibility that he dies trying because he just got shot.'”

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ features the mega-hit single ‘In Da Club’ as well as ‘P.I.M.P’, ’21 Questions’ and ‘If I Can’t’.

Pre-sales for the show begin Friday, June 2 before general tickets go on sale on Thursday, June 8.
